Photographer Matej Peljhan created these vividly imagined images with the help of twelve year old Luka.  Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy.  The muscle disease has severly limited Luka’s movement to mostly his fingers making even the most basic task difficult or impossible.  Luka worked with Peljhan to create photographs of fun activities that would usually be impossible for Luka to take part in.  Using simple props, Luka would be positioned on the ground as Peljhan shot the photographs from above.  The resulting images form a heartwarming series titled The Little Prince.  [via]
